New tool to help Kentucky smokers quit

Kentucky health officials want smokers to have a better chance at quitting and there are now new tools in place to help kick the habit.

This new tool is a website https://www.quitnowkentucky.org/. But it's not just for information it's very interactive.

When you log on you register for free and also get a personalized plan to help.

The site also offers live chat with others trying to quit for immediate support.

There's even a calculator that tells you how much money you'd save once tobacco free.

Local health officials say having instant access will help more quit smoking faster. The 1-800-QUIT-NOW line is still in place but the website gives folks more convenient access.
